    I guess it was the mandatory set for all shop classes. A guy in our class heated a pair of pliers in the heat treat furnace and threw them on the floor. End of class every one sitting down and the teacher goes to check that all tools are back in the cabinet. He spots the pliers on the floor and goes over and grabs them. He did not hold them for long. No one knew who had left them there. About 3 months later the wise guy decides to try it again. It seems like the teacher was watching, waiting for it to happen again and spotted him doing it. This time he tells him to go pick up the pliers. He wont do it and then the beating started. The teacher was punching him and slapping him. In 1964 this wasn't a problem. Today it would a felony.

    1955 GMC L’Universelle Concept Vehicle - Though Chrysler executive Lee Iacocca and his designers generally are credited with inventing the minivan in the early 1980s, Earl came up with a remarkably similar concept a quarter-century before them. The L’Universelle, a front-wheel-drive car/truck hybrid with the driver’s compartment in front of the engine, was nearly a foot lower than conventional panel trucks, yet had as much space inside as much larger vehicles.

    Sir Vival (1958) Walter C. Jerome's Sir Vival Safety Car, 1958 Walter C. Jerome of Worcester, Massachusetts was a man possesed by a mission to make the world's safest car. In the end, he failed to advance auto safety but Jerome's segmented sedan might easily qualify as the world's strangest car.

    "In May of 1963, the designers in the Advanced Cadillac Studio were working on ideas for a V-16 roadster. Full size, air brushed renderings like this example were based on small sketches and could take two or three days to produce."

    not quite. As stated, Packard built Merlins under license once Rolls Royce suggested fitting a pair of Mustang I's with Merlin 65's and noted the exceptional performance. These were not minimal changes - not only the nose but the structure and cooling ducting was changed. The Allison-powered Mustangs were no slouches below 11,000 feet.

    Packard also made many improvements to the Merlin to make it easier to build - changes Rolls did later.

    This book covers this and much more:

    I have done a lot of extensive research into how the L'Universal was ever built . At one time , 1978 in Houston , I had constructed a 1-1 clone of the body . I have only a 1-25th scale model any longer as I could never find a suitable transaxle . On the prototype , a special version of the Pontiac Tempest was experimented with . The power plant was indeed , a Pontiac 289 V-8 GMC L Universalle van rear view - door closed.jpg
